Ready for Brexit? You still have:


The Brexit solution of the Dutch ports

As of the 1st of January 2021, your transport to and from the United Kingdom always starts with a declaration to Customs. Once this has been done, you digitally pre-notify the customs documents at the terminals via Portbase. This pre-notification is mandatory at all ferry terminals and most shortsea terminals. Otherwise, your cargo will be denied access. Therefore, be sure to make careful agreements about who does what in your logistics chain. In 5 simple steps, you can ensure fast transport via the Dutch ports in 2021 as well!
